Likes:
For a central location our room was really quiet
Dislikes:
The parking was in the long stay a drive around the back of the hotel. In order to stay longer you have to ensure you get back to add money by 8am each morning

"Fab location and restaurant - shame about the rest!"
Two nights break visiting friends for wedding party. Bedrooms tired - all need a deep clean. Had to ask for a bigger room as first room tiny. Bed comfortable and clean. Plaster falling off wall by window. Shower was pathetic - not enough water to get shampoo out of hair!
Really bothered when leaving to see clean sheets for room thrown on corridor floor! Not hygenic.
Breakfast room on first floor was awful! Feet and chairs stick to the filthy brown carpet. Water dripping through large crack in Read less
Likes:
Downstairs public areas and restaurant obviously renovated and very nice.
Food good but expensive.
Some staff jovial and polite.
Dislikes:
Some staff very curt!
See above - bedrooms and breakfast room awful!
